Metastatic Brain Cancer Services

If you have metastatic cancer that has spread to your brain, there is hope. Research suggests that cancer patients who are treated by multiple specialists working together have better survival outcomes.

Rush offers a special service for patients with metastatic brain cancer: By calling a dedicated phone number — (312) RUSH-MET (787-4638) — you or your doctor can speak directly to a neurosurgeon or radiation oncologist.

Following that, staff from Rush will contact you within one business day of your initial conversation to schedule your appointment with both physicians as soon as possible. These experts then work together to help determine an individualized plan for you.
